Welcome to the Apple Discussions.
To export a video from iPhoto:
Select the video in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. Set the *Kind: to Original*. This will export your video.
can't export them in a format that I can then import into Vimeo or other video sharing site.
Why? What formats do they require? Do the videos require shifting to a new format?
What the heck does a guy gotta do to share his simple .avi videos with others on the Internet?
Who can tell, when you don’t explain where the procedure breaks down for you.
I tried exporting it from Quicktime too, but sadly, exporting my own video from Quicktime requires that I have a Pro account. Sad but true.
Why is that sad? When you export from Quicktime you are shifting formats or otherwise editing the video.
Thanks for replying. As I said, I can export to my desktop, but when I do File/Export, it appears to export a file that is only 100k. When I open that file from my desktop, it launches a quicktime window and I can view the video. But when I try to upload that file from my desktop to Vimeo, it fails because it's not the full .avi (2mb) file that is in iPhoto. I imagine that exporting the video from iPhoto actually just creates a shortcut on my desktop that reads the file from iPhoto.
When I export per your instructions, the export takes about 2 seconds, which makes me believe that it is only exporting a shortcut to the iPhoto video.
I want to export the full, complete .avi video.
Many thanks both of you!!
I was almost loosing my last hairs in trying to export the video's from iPhoto.
To be quite honest; the difference between "Current" and "Original" is not what I would describe as obvious, hopefully the iLife '09 iPhoto version handles this better, or at least explains it in the help file.
